Trust planning in comfort of your own home.  Covering Yorkshire & Lancashire.

What is a Trust?


Looking to set up a trust fund? A trust fund is a formal arrangement in which a trusted individual/s or a trust corporation holds and manages the assets on behalf of other particular individuals or they are used as a useful tax planning tool. The assets are put into trust for a beneficiary’s life, or until they reach a certain age.

Different kinds of assets can be put in trust, including:


  • cash
  • property
  • shares
  • land


Trusts can be set up at any time or written into your will.



Trusts are set up for a number of reasons, including:


  • to control and protect family assets, including the family home from care fees
  • to save on probate fees and inheritance tax
  • when a beneficiary is too young to handle their affairs
  • when someone cannot handle their affairs because they’re incapacitated
  • to pass on assets while a settlor is still alive
  • to pass on assets when a settlor dies (a ‘will trust’)
  • under the rules of intestacy if someone dies without a will (in England and Wales)
